Your Doula

North Vancouver Doula

I am a North Vancouver Doula supporting mamas and families in Vancouver, North Vancouver and West Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster and the Tri-Cities area.

I was born and grew up on the North Shore. I am a wife and a mother to three wonderful children, two boys and a girl, ages 18, 12 and 10.  I love being a mom and enjoy work that connects me to other women embarking on the journey of motherhood themselves.  In my free time I enjoy being out in nature: hiking, camping, the beach and the mountains. I am a hobbyist photographer and enjoy re-experiencing my adventures by scrapbooking them.

I have always had a fascination with pregnancy and childbirth.  I studied a unit on midwifery in college which served to ignite my passion further.  After my own empowering experiences of natural childbirth, I took every opportunity to join friends and family members in birthing.

I completed my DONA Birth Doula Training in 2009. I have since attended births periodically while balancing the demands of raising our own children and helping with our family business, Ferguson Moving and Storage.  In the past year I have been able to commit more time to my true passion and have been honoured to attend nearly 20 births.

I enjoy expanding my knowledge in the world of birthing and natural health.  I attend various birth related workshops, seminars and training as opportunities present themselves.  I have audited several prenatal class series, including Lamaze and Hypnobabies.  I have also been studying the benefits of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy for prenatal, birth and postpartum and well as for general health.  I love using oils and find them comforting and therapeutic through the birthing process.  See my page on Essential Oils or purchase individual oils at mydoterra.com/mamacare.
